Tickets have gone on sale today for both Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party & Mickey’s Verry Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World in Florida. However it looks like Disney has both raised ticket prices across the board and introduced a more complicated pricing structure. This can mean that an event which was already pretty expensive to begin with might now be out of many guests budgets. Hit the jump for details on what you can expect to pay and for any discounts on these tickets.
I had the fortune of attending both parties last year and I had a blast. If I can only go to one I’d choose Mickey’s Not-So-Scary over the Christmas party. I liked the Christmas party, but the Boo To You parade is my favorite so the halloween party will always win.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
Last year tickets ranged from $68 – $87 depending on your date and when you purchased. This year things are a quite a bit pricier. Tickets will now range from $72 – $102 with most dates having a ticket price of $91. You still get a discount for purchasing tickets in advance and of course there are AP & DVC discounts. However, even with these discounts this event is still expensive. If you take full advantage of the party and arrive at 4 PM you can get 8 hours in the park if you stay until closing. If you don’t have an Annual Pass and are set on going to the party you may want to get one less general admission ticket and just save your park day for the party. I did this last year with the Christmas party and we were able to do some relaxing resort hopping and sightseeing on property before heading to the party. It didn’t feel like we were missing out on a day at the parks since we were at Magic Kingdom for eight hours!

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
Tickets in 2015 ranged from $74 – $82, this year they will range from $86 – $99 depending on your date. Again, the same advanced purchase, AP & DVC discounts apply here. Again, my tip about saving money on your general tickets and using the party ticket for your park day would still apply here. I think the Christmas party is very fun and if you’re really into the holidays you’ll probably really enjoy it. Christmas season is one of the busiest times of year at Walt Disney World so just be aware of that if you’re picking a date close to Christmas.
